Jutland service remembers the fallen

David Cameron, Nicola Sturgeon and the Princess Royal, along with the German President Joachim Gauck, joined descendants of those who fought at the Battle of Jutland for a centenary service to remember the thousands who died in the largest naval battle of the First World War.

During the service at St Magnus Cathedral on Orkney diary entries of those who served on both sides were read out, while a German and a British cadet lit a candle in a sign of hope.

Princess Anne represented the royal family at the memorial after the Duke of Edinburgh cancelled his trip on doctor's advice.
